Old barbarian — cause of complaint — leading demo (6,5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

hunger march

Here is my best explanation:

'demo' is the definition.

'old barbarian cause of complaint leading' is the subsidiary indication.

'old barbarian' becomes 'hun'.

'cause of complaint' becomes 'germ' (might cause a medical complaint).

'leading' becomes 'arch' (e.g. in arch-enemy).

'hun'+'germ'+'arch'='hungermarch'

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for hunger march that I've seen before include "movement that brings protest" and "1936 Jarrow demonstration".)
